    True, it is about sugar. I got off topic responding to the molasses post.

    Aye! Early Miller time out here today. Matt, did you say you had success with the sugar? Was it brown or white sugar? I'll try it this spring.

    Hmm, sugar to kill weeds. Even if that were to work I wonder how cost-efficient one could make it. Of course you'd have to buy wholesale in some way.

    Last year we introduced distiller's molasses into our lineup of offerings with resounding success. Tremendous color response particularly when applied in conjunction with a grain based meal or finished compost. Distiller's molasses appears to have the right micro package that is lacking in much of this area's high pH heavy clay soils.

    If your customer is pleased with your application of molasses, tell him/her you'll be back next time around to apply the rest of the mole! :laugh:
